There’s no question wine made Napa Valley famous. With more than 400 wineries, finding a spot to sip couldn’t be much simpler. But when you pack your bags for a trip to Napa Valley, you’ll want to come prepared to do more than just drink wine. Its Mediterranean climate often includes sunny skies in the middle of winter, so outside exploring comes with year-round possibilities. Start you your day with a hike at Skyline Wilderness Park or a trip to Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park to see tallest waterwheel west of the Mississippi. Grab everything you need for a gourmet picnic atOxbow Public Market or sit down to a white linen table while you ride the rails aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train. At the end of the day, take in a live performance at downtown Napa’s historicUptown Theatre or a see the latest release at Cameo Cinema in downtown St. Helena. Choices are plenty, just be sure to pack good walking shoes.
